With the 17 investigations targeting him and constant denials that seem to only confirm guilt, President Donald Trump is often compared to the only President ever to resign from office: Richard Nixon.
Nixon’s presidency was brought down after he lied about the break-in of the Democratic National Committee headquarters in order to prevent an investigation about his involvement.
Now, Nixon’s White House Counsel during that time, John Dean, is savagely calling out the President saying:
“Trump’s not only incompetent he’s actually a wuss. Like most bullies he’s a coward.”
Trump’s bitching and whining and complaining is non-stop. The presidency reveals its occupant: Trump’s not only incompetent he’s actually a wuss. Like most bullies he’s a coward. As with most autocrats he’s a very frightened person. He’s a fake leader, who thinks nasty is strong. https://t.co/4YAQkhFv31

Dean was fired by Nixon as the White House Counsel and eventually testified to prosecutors regarding Nixon’s role in the matter.
Twitter echoed Dean’s sentiments.

We've all known presidents whom we might have disagreed w/ on policy. Did any of us ever expect to see a corrupt phony "businessman" w/ no real knowledge of the world, whose brand was built for decades on a false persona, run for this office on a publicity stunt & actually win?

Many were worried about Trump’s state of mind as comeuppance for his corruption appears to be closing in.
Trump makes us vulnerable to attack. He has checked out of his office and is in survival mode. Take no prisoners.
My faith and hope in our military has never been stronger. If we don't right this ship soon I honestly fear we will need them far more than we have in decades.

The Ultimate Scammer says Democrats are running a scam. Is admitting guilt usually part of a scam? Listening to Trump telling Michael Cohen to commit a felony doesn't sound like a scam. Trump knows how many crimes he has committed—and Mueller knows, too. Trump's freaking out.

May I add that he knows the truths behinds all of the allegations and soon to be charges. It’s just a matter time before it’s over…he will string this out as long as possible. Problem is some Republicans on The Hill are part of these dealings so they’ll nothing to stop him.

Dean’s experience with Watergate coupled with the many comparisons of Trump to Nixon has led Dean to weigh in on these matters before.
